Farell Showing Off the New SD-10G

Farell Showing Off the New SD-10G

Last weekend we had the chance to get out and show off the new SD-10G at the 1st Annual Heli Fun Fly at the OCMA Black Starr field. This was a very well attended local event. Thanks to finlessbob and Heli-Freak for helping us get a space there!

Eric Pacheco flew the new SD-10G in a Cypher with some prototype option parts on it. The option parts are great, the heli is even more stable and predictable with these parts, and Eric did a great job with it. The heli was setup by Farrell on Friday with a brand new SD-10G that neither Eric nor Farrell had ever flown before, and yet they were able to get it hovered and trimmed on Friday and completely setup and flying in public on Saturday! It is amazing how easy the heli and the radio are to setup.

Farrell manned the Airtronics Booth. He showed off the radio all day. Everyone’s feedback was positive. People said things like they were glad to Airtronics “back in the game”, that the new radio “felt natural and comfortable”, and that the feel of the stick were simply excellent. The radio easily setups up in and works great in helicopters. I think we’ve truly got a winner here. What a superb radio!

The event itself was simply hours and hours of hot 3D flying, pretty much non-stop except for the demos and contest events like the drag race. It is amazing how proficient most people are today at flying 3D and how many people are wringing out expensive, high end machines, so close to the ground, all of the time. 3D heli pilots are definitely adrenhaline junkies!

Eric did great, the SD-10G performed flawlessly, and I’m sure Cypher owners everywhere will be excited to see the new Cypher Hopups.

THANK YOU to Farrell, Eric, and the 1st Annual Heli Fun Fly!
